Scott Brown for ending DADT
In a move that is absolutely no surprise, Scott Brown, the Republican senator from Massachusetts whose election last January was seen as a miracle by conservatives (including me), because at the time it apparently meant the defeat of Obamacare, announced he will support the repeal of “Don’t ask, don’t tell” and thus the admission of open homosexuals into the U.S. military. As I wrote two weeks after his election:
[I]t’s been clear from the start that Brown is not a conservative. Not only is he pro Roe v. Wade, he has no problem with homosexual “marriage.” And when we remember how he and his wife let their daughters dress at his victory speech, it’s clear that this is not a conservative family.Brown also posed for a sleazy nude photograph of himself in Cosmopolitan 30 years ago, which, far from regretting today, he plainly regards as one of his proudest accomplishments. As a VFR reader put it, Brown is “a man of suspect motives who oozes a creepy sort of sexuality,” which was perfectly captured in the Saturday Night Life skit on him. Put that all together, and his support for the biggest goal of the sexual liberation and homosexual rights movements, short of homosexual “marriage” itself, was to be expected. His life-style liberalism trumps his supposed support for the armed forces. He wants to use our already over-stressed and overtaxed military as a laboratory for an insane social experiment.
